For generations, vessels built on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay have been famous among seafaring peoples of Europe and America. In Maryland and Virginia, the two states which confine the bay, the master shipwrights have always been experimental designers of sturdy vessels for use wherever speed has been the prime requirement. Some, like the Baltimore clipper, have become world famous. Little note has been made, however, of other types of craft, even though their utility and length of service have been considerably longer. This volume redresses that oversight. Brewington traces the history of log canoes and bugeyes, providing meticulous descriptions of the hulls, rigging, fittings, and specialized equipment used on these unique bay craft. The plates give lines and sail plans for more than a score of specific vessels. This combined edition of Chesapeake Bay Log Canoes, first published in 1937, and Chesapeake Bay Bugeyes, first published in 1941, is a revised and enlarged version. Its publication has been made possible through the cooperation of The Mariners' Museum, Newport News, Virginia.
